Exclamation Help!! Well not help, but advice....

Woke up this morning and my girl Ruby was missing her eye! Yep. Have no clue how it happened. She always keeps to herself because of the bigger girls and never causes problems.
Her history:
Calm gentle girl who gets along with everyone! She has a picky diet though...Will only eat Walter Worms...Had to seperate to feed....Always stayed low to the bottom....Always been very healthy till now...

I removed her and placed her in a bare 1 gallon vace 3/4 of the way full (to bluild up her strength again). Added Worms (which she has ate on). Also added some table salt....Dont worry this is safe, as I read many articles about it!
She is swimming from top to bottom, but mostly staying at the top..
I believe she is just getting used to her 1 eye.
Also her fins are badly torn....I have put Wardleys Essentials which treats fungus, and external parasites. So what I am asking is....What else can I do to help her...?
Thanks

Sounds like someone beat the heck out of her. I would try some Jungle Fungus Eliminator. You need to try to encourage her to eat something other than walter worms. Thats like letting a kid eat nothing but candy. And, of course, you know about how important it is to keep the water clean.

She has ate some pellets, but I think they might to big for her so I will try to find some smaller ones!
And I will be cleaning that water every day. I will also try to find some Jungle Fungus...
Do you know where I can find it???

I would try micro pellets by Hikari. They are very tiny and she should be able to eat them. You can get them and Jungle Fungus Eliminator at Petsmart or Petco.Walmart MIGHT have it.
